Track Name: Diggin' An Elephants Grave With A Spoon
finishing the phrase you drew
never understood the loop
here to catch my breath again
in the mean time

hands are cutting holes in me
incisive leaking perfectly
seeping through my head again
do you realize?

bold face
i'm not one to let you see me
get outta bed and leave me
in the night

starry eyed
did you really think i wouldn't notice?
something tells me that i've been cold
and out of my mind

your love is sinking soft in me
melting deeply, carelessly
joy i'd bring to you again
slowly

better hope my hands still
in it only for the thrill
sudden movements make me cringe
move again, make it harder

oh regret
lies always made you weary
you know i try to make this easy on myself

silent friend, will you show me how to see it clearly?
did our life always make you teary?
oh my god


i think you know it, honey
i think you know it bad.
Track Name: Different Strokes
all made up
nothing about you was real
poor old kid
you'd think that he'd notice
he don't know shit

i claw my fears
nothing feels better
as to be inside of you
do you fear me?
are you looking towards for the end?
the finish line

remember you promised that we'd make it home?
you've been taking comfort in another's words
your love is so numb you never say enough
like an idol, full and fallen over
you empty gun with no revolver
your faith is a lie, can you count on your friend?
do i pay for my sins, for my lies, my lament?

oh my lord
i'm betting its better now
they say it's suicide
do you love?
you seem so indifferent to me
most of the time

open me
i'm in trouble
i've said it again
i thought it was different

way to leave
so unnoticed
i'm barely awake
i thought it was different
Track Name: Rabbit Hole
won't you tell me your fears?
whisper close to my face
hiding thoughts you don't steer
maybe you can tell i'm ashamed

put those hands on my shoulders
let you break me again
use your warmth the winter
tell me that you love me in vein

how i wish these words could explain it all!
how the hell did i get so bad?
damn the lisp and my cold unfiltered gums
i guess i always envy the past

now it seems so unfocused
empty hearts feel no pain
i won't say what i witnessed
just as long as you do the same

oh i bet you're a sinner
speaking louder, refrain
will i last this december?
sad i never told you my name

did you really fall down that rabbit hole?
how i wish i'd known you had left!
if you ever need my help down below
hold on to that heart in your chest

damn you bitter son of mine
oh you're learning from the best
die an old man on your own
stop haunting me
Track Name: The Hands of Time
you go, carrying the hands of time
a phenomenon, so peculiar
they say, we're buried in the weight of god
down the drain, why so bitter?
cause it feeds her,
from the palm of my hand

i suffer from the worst hypocrisy
i beg to differ all the time,
perhaps it gives us all a way
do i confide? well never mind!
ill leave it for their souls
to bring to light,
arriving here just in time
falling in to place
i'm feeling mightier than my old man did

those eyes, remind me of an early night
a castaway, wears me deeper
surprise, the word of god has
never lead a clean life,
i will pray it's not so filthy
it gets filthy, so quickly now

i suffer from the worst hypocrisy
i beg to differ all the time,
perhaps it gives us all a way
do i confide? well nevermind!
ill leave it for their souls
to bring to light,
arriving here just in time
falling in to place
i'm feeling mightier than my old man did
Track Name: Raise Awareness About Salamander
we lay there still
in our desire
catching dreams
we can pass right through
your only window
remind me how we met?

i've seen 'em come and go
i've seen many waste their time
the only one i don't mind

i've never had a plan
i've never had a real job
hold me til the morning
or til it falls apart

dare i say
there's only a few
who made their way beside me

and i don't care
ill stick it with you
so take your time
you need to

ill never make you stay
ill never try to change your mind
im not one to persist you

ill swear ill be your friend
even if it don't work out
i've known this since i met you
back at warm house

hold me
closely
slowly
tightly
in your
i've been waiting
patient
to sink back in to you
